It's a hard luck world
It's a bitter pill
She was a hard luck girl
With lots of hard luck skills

She's heard it all before
She wears a slinky dress
And, as he promises more, and more, and more
She is not impressed

Her mind is someplace else
His arm is 'round her neck
He leans in for a kiss
She gives him just a peck

He says, "I'll take you dancing
I'll buy you diamond rings!"
She says, "Well, ain't that something"
But, it don't mean a thing

How She ended up here
Just kind of went that way
Now, how She'll ever leave here
She wonders everyday
